Attention husbands, boyfriends, wives, girlfriends and significant others.
If your better half is a blogger, you guys should take a leaf out of my hubby’s book on how to woo/love a blogger. Haha.
Like any blogger, I’m quite obsessed about my blog’s analytics and stats. I use a number of widgets and websites to track my blog’s analytics.
The newest blog analytics tracker I’m using is Woopra. What I like about Woopra is that it is real-time and it has a client that you can conveniently run on your desktop.
So pretty much the whole day, my Woopra client is running and I would
obsessively occasionally peek at my blog stats.
Except last Friday. Unfortunate for the hubby who decided to be the romantic that he is. His romantic plan failed because I didn’t see it then, but I have to give him credit, really, LOL :)
Our conversation last night:
Artie: Can I take a look at your Dashboard?
Artie: Wala lang. I want to see what info I can get from it. Like the queries and keyword search.
Me: (feeling suspicious since it’s not in his line of work) Is it for work?
Artie: Sort of.
Me: *teasingly* Baket, ume-eps ka na naman at work? (Haha, yes, I’m mean that way. I like to mercilessly tease him about his gung-ho “bibo” exaggerated personality. Amuses me a lot since I’m very stoic compared to him. How he has so much energy is beyond me.)
Artie: Hay nako, iinisin mo lang ako mali pa. The right term is “nagpapasikat”.
Me: Whatever. *rolling my eyes*
So I opened my Dashboard and started showing him which stats and information are available. He said, “No, I want to see your queries last Friday.”
I started groaning and sighing since it was taking too long and I just wanted to dabble in my Facebook already.
So I started showing him the searches for Friday, quickly scrolling up and down.
Artie: Can you scroll more slowly. I think I saw my query already.
And guess what I saw?
All together now: “Awwwwwwwww.”
In reality though, I was rolling my eyes and trying not to get all ‘kilig’, haha ;) I like playing the tough cookie, hehe.
So if ever you do try this, make sure your better half’s analytics tool is as comprehensive as Woopra and make sure he/she is checking it out the moment you do something like this (like a proposal, or something, haha) ;)
Artie 1 point! ;)
